The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the International Code Council (ICC), an association dedicated to building safety and fire prevention, signed a Memorandum of Understanding that will seek ways to optimize development of codes and standards to improve public safety.

ASHRAE said the organizations will work together on industry advocacy and public policy and explore joint business opportunities.

"The integration of leading edge technology via ASHRAE standards and guidelines into the building codes ensures the general public that the built environment will be efficient, healthy, comfortable and safe,” said ASHRAE President Terry Townsend. “This MOU will enhance both ASHRAE's and ICC's capabilities to have a positive impact on new construction and renovation activities in not only North American but also the international markets."

ASHRAE said the ICC model is an objective, scientifically based code development process, designed to achieve consensus on important health and safety issues. A key element of the process is the use of consensus-based referenced standards, such as those produced by ASHRAE.
